We think that everyone needs to give this Quick Pavlova recipe a go! Don’t be afraid – it’s a fun pav to make. And lopsided pavlovas are all the more charming. Perfect for a Kiwiana Christmas. Hello Summer Pavlova!

To make a Quick Pavlova you will need:

6 large egg whites (straight from the fridge)

3 tablespoon cold water

1 ¼ cup sugar (not caster sugar)

3 teaspoons cornflour

1 teaspoon vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Beat the egg whites till they form very stiff peaks.

Add water and beat well again.

Gradually beat in the sugar beating thoroughly.

Add cornflour and beat in.

Spread on a greased tray keeping it high and small.

Cook for 1 hour at 150C. Leave to cool in the turned off oven after that hour.

Cool again slightly before sliding on to a plate with a spatula.

Serve with fresh red berries and sweet whipped cream as shown above, or decorate all kiwiana green and red festive with halved strawberries and kiwifruit rounds. Be creative like Fresh friend Ashley Mant did!
